Heath from Residential-photography.net sent me two versions of a recent 3 day shoot that he did for Beverly-Hanks & Associates Asheville, NC.
Heath was telling me that: "This was the first video that I have shot largely hand held to give it a more human like perspective. I was a little nervous about leaving my tripods and sliders in the car but now I am a huge fan of this style of shooting. The smooth motion of jibs and sliders when used intentionally can go a long way toward supporting a story just as the faster, more erratic motion of handheld shooting does. I am paying much more attention to intentionally mixing handheld shots into my videos now and it is helping me learn how to communicate with the camera."
8039 Mercer Way, Mercer Island, WA by Malia Campbell: I noticed Malia's recent shoot on Mercer Island. I like Malia's cinematic style and the way it is narrated. Malia said that recently the use of video in the Seattle area seems to be starting to increase.
